A Warm January Weekend

I'm loving this January weather! Although it's been very foggy for over a week, the temps have been warm, which means the minis got to spend plenty of time outdoors last weekend! Things have been crazy in our world since we decided to place on offer on a house (more details on that in another post to come), so we tried to keep things low key while also going through some of our stuff (read: crap) we've accumulated the last six years.

Friday night we took the minis out to our fave Mexican restaurant so this momma could have a drink. Of course, the minis asked some interesting questions, such as why some adults don't boys to have friends that are girls and vice versa. So I attempted to explain it to me. Clearly they didn't appreciate my answers or our in-depth conversation (picture below).

Hubs had to work Saturday morning, so the minis were treated to donuts from our favorite donut place Donut Hut. Then we ran errands and took a hike later in the afternoon at Brown's Woods Preserve.

A stop for gelato at Stam after picking up some new jackets at Gap Kids.

There's never a dull moment on our hikes! This hike included shenanigans such as playing Power Rangers (the minis, not mom and dad), several stops for boot tying, dancing, butt shaking (that's different than her dancing butt shake apparently), and balance beams (actually benches but whatever).

Sometimes we still like each other.

I love being woken at 3:30 a.m. by the cat, sitting and mowing on my hip so I could get him some wet cat food. He's lucky he's such a good snuggler most nights!

Sunday morning started early (because of the cat). We made homemade waffles for breakfast, played card games, and then went appliance shopping. Please note that appliance shopping is not easily done with three minis in tow and is not for the easily anxious parent. Needless to say, they weren't that big of a help but we think we found what we were looking for.

We successfully shot out the loose tooth with a Nerf Gun! 

We played Old Maid A LOT! All weekend long.
